Past Quote of the Week

Every week I put on a new ‘quote of the week’ inspired by an article at Education World about how to use quotations to invoke abstract thinking into students. (read the article if you are not sure the how what and why to this)

This is something every parent can do!

Week One: “We haven’t failed. We now know a thousand things that won’t work, so we are much closer to finding what will.” — Thomas Edison

What’s sort of funny about that quote is that I have read it as something a bit different on posters at the library. But I don’t think it matters if quotes are slightly different, all that matters is that the message is there.

Week Two: “Every man is guilty of all the good he didn’t do.” — Voltaire

Week Three: “A book is like a garden carried in a pocket.” — Chinese proverb

Week Four: “It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.” — The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
